    Hangover Remedies??? Anyone....? -- Decidedly Un-Primal

    So I realize that over imbibing is totally against the whole primal thing, but lets face it, I'm a 24 year old guy with his own place and a best bud who was the first person I ever drank with and we've known each other for the majority of those years.

    My favorite after-drinking remedy has always been buttered toast, and that sure isn't primal. I just can't think of anything primal that would help.

    I'm sure some of you must have suggestions.... please?

    lots of water at the end of the night. better to have a glass of water between each drink but that can be hard. I always want sweet stuff the next day, if your like me fruit is a good option. Someone posted a recipe for ice cream with coconut milk and frozen raspberries-that might be tummy settling (cold always helps me but gnawing on ice cubes is boring).

    Like Pattyd said-grease and fat is always good too (if your tummy can handle it). Rivin has a yummy primal bread recipe in the Recipe forum that might help (and you can toast it and smear with butter).

    hmmm....can't think of any others. Hope that helps

    Eggs, bacon and a glass of full fat milk either makes me feel great or makes me want to throw up. It's a bit risky, but when it works it's awesome.

    Complex vitamin B's before your drinking binge and another after and make sure you get plenty of water in between the drinking! Helps sooo much, even though I am not a big fan of getting drunk I sure do like to indulge once in awhile and hate getting those headaches as a result! good luck!

    Also, if you are comfortable with (over-the-counter) medications, a combination of paracetamol and ibuprofen does wonders for a hangover. It's not primal, but it's very effective.

    This is important -- don't ever take aspirin, Tylenol or ibuprofen while drinking or before passing out at the end of the night (unless directed to do so by a physician).

    Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is metabolized by the liver and the combination of alcohol and acetaminophen can cause your liver to release a toxic metabolite. Alcohol mixed with acetaminophen is very dangerous and can do serious damage to your liver. Tylenol was recently forced to include warnings on its packaging telling its users not to mix it with alcohol. Ibuprofen is metabolized by your liver as well.

    I 2nd the water recommendation. Hangovers are mainly due to dehydration. Plenty of water is your best bet, and then eating will help provide some nutrients which may help.

    I've read they're due to congeners?

    Yeah. I meant the day after drinking. Never combine either of those with alcohol.

    I assumed people will read the package instructions before taking any medication, and preferably consult with their doctor if they have special medical conditions or are already medicated, but I guess it's always good to be on the safe side. You new know how people will relate to random advice they find on the Internet...
